Can the South Remain Standing?

The South won’t have to rise again…just remain standing, while the rest of America falls.

Sherman and the American Total War: Part 1

Sherman is a controversial figure to say the least. Georgians and many southerners in general go so far as to show signs of anger and/or contempt whenever Sherman’s name is mentioned.
